Former Gov. Cuomo spoke at God’s Battalion of Prayer Church in Brooklyn on Sunday, March 6. Cuomo resigned from his position as governor after NYS Attorney General Letitia James conducted an investigation that found Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women. Last week, Cuomo’s team released an ad campaign targeting AG James’ report on sexual harassment claims.

Cuomo’s Sunday speech addressed the allegations by pointing out that none of them resulted in charges against him. He also defended his handling of nursing homes deaths in his COVID-19 pandemic response, as well as condemning “cancel culture.”

Cuomo was invited to speak at the church by Reverend Alfred Cockfield, who Cuomo appointed to the Long Island Power Authority Board in 2021. He did not address whether or not he would seek office again in his speech.
